Customer Question

Our apartment is in Flushing, New York. The rent is $ 1460 monthly. The lease will be expired next month. The landlord wants us to renew the lease but he increases the rent to $ 2172. The apartment belongs to rent stabilization. I think it is unreasonable. I need your idea.

Is the apartment in a rent controlled area?

good afternoon. The increase in a occupied rent stabilized apartment such as yours is 0% for a 1 yr lease, and 2% for a 2 year lease. The landlords increase is illegal. A complaint can be filed with NYS DHCR at(###) ###-####
